1 APSC 132 PROBLEM SET 2 SOLUTIONS Problem 1 The expansion is adiabatic and irreversible . P gas V gas V 1 = V 2 = n = 1.00 mol n = 1.00 mol P 1 = 5050 kPa P 2 = 101 kPa T 1 = 773 K T 2 = C v = C p – R = 21.0 J/mol.K V 1 = nRT 1 /P 1 = (1.00)(8.31)(773)/5050 L = 1.27 L Because process is irreversible , we cannot use P 1 V 1 g =P 2 V 2 g . However, we still require T 2 . Because process adiabatic, D E = w (because q = 0). Therefore, nC v (T 2 -T 1 ) = -P ext (V 2 -V 1 ) = -P ext (nRT 2 /P 2 – nRT 1 /P 1 ) =-nRP ext (T 2 /P 2 – T 1 /P 1 ) Unless stated otherwise, you can assume that P ext = P 2 . We know all variable except T 2 . Solve for T 2 . (1.00)(21.0)(T 2 – 773) = -(1.00)(8.31)(101)(T 2 /101 – 773/5050)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
